Clifford E. Smith, 78, passed away on Sunday, August 2, 2020 at the Glens Falls Hospital following a long illness.

Born July 7, 1942, in Granville, NY, he was the son of the late Frank and Ellen (York) Smith.

Clifford married Nancy Pitkin on December 17, 1967. He worked for many years for the Town of Fort Edward. He was known by everyone as “Smitty” and as “The Candy Man” at Slate Valley Center.

Clifford enjoyed spending time with his family and was always feeding the birds and squirrels. He also enjoyed spending time in his garden and was an excellent cook. He was known for his amazing fudge and homemade pickles.

In addition to his parents, Clifford was predeceased by his brothers, Richard, Walter, Lee, and Raymond Smith, as well as his sister, Ellen Dubay.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 53 years, Nancy Smith, his children; Melissa Smith, John Smith and Grace Ma (Stephen), his grandchildren; Amanda Mallory (Jacob), Dylan LaPoint, and Alexis and Caitlin Ma, his great-grandchildren; Ryan Smith, Madison Mallory, and Troy Mallory, his sisters-in-law Susan Vannier and Terri Palmer, as well as his beloved cat Lucy.

At Clifford’s request there will be no calling hours. Due to the pandemic, a Celebration of Life will take place at a date in the future.

Arrangements are in the care of the M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 82 Broadway, Fort Edward, NY 12828.

The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Belinda Martindale and the entire staff of Slate Valley Center, as well as the doctors and nurses on Tower 6 at the Glens Falls Hospital for their care and compassion during Clifford’s illness.

It’s with great sadness that the Earth has lost such a wonderful man. I’m so glad that we’ve got so many memories to cherish. Us kids had a wonderful childhood because you were part of it. I’m so glad my dad and I made that trip to see you and took those photos for memories. Who knew how quickly they’d become so important. I’ll cherish all of my childhood memories. You were the best neighbors and we all are still bonded. That’s amazing in itself. We love you Nancy, Johnny, Grace and Missy and the rest of the family. See you soon ♥️
